More than just an Outstanding Sailing Project

Races 2013


COWES WEEK
[3. – 10. August]
Cowes Week yearly attracts the biggest sailing stars and excitement to competitors and spectators alike with over 1000 yachts and 8000 competitors taking part at some top-class sailing competitions in the 8 days to the English seaport town located on the Isle of Wight. Weekly happening is organized by Cowes Combined Clubs (Organizational body of ten yacht clubs which lead the program of the week).

Since 1826 Cowes Week has played a key part in the UK’s sporting summer calendar and is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events. It now stages up to 40 daily races for around 1000 yachts and is the largest sailing race of its kind in the world in excess of 100,000 spectators, who are able to see much of the racing from the shore or from the water as there are a number of yacht cruiser options available. Cowes Week therefore represents what is best about sailing, from competitive racing during the day, to cultural events in the evening. In 2013 it also represented the first challenges for Esimit Europa 2 in the United Kingdom. The Esimit Sailing Team went on to post two line honors at the two races attended within the Big Boat Series.
